    Default Philospophy as a Mental Disorder? Pure Quackery!

    Sheez, another illustration of the pseudo-scientific “profession” of psychiatry follows.

    I was doing some research on Nihilism recently and came across the following at Answers.com:

    ni•hil•ism (nī'-lĭz'em, nē'-) noun

    1. Philosophy.

    a. An extreme form of skepticism that denies all existence.
    b. A doctrine holding that all values are baseless and that nothing
    can be known or communicated.

    2. Rejection of all distinctions in moral or religious value and a
    willingness to repudiate all previous theories of morality or religious
    belief.

    3. The belief that destruction of existing political or social institutions is
    necessary for future improvement.

    4. also Nihilism A diffuse, revolutionary movement of mid 19th-century
    Russia that scorned authority and tradition and believed in reason,
    materialism, and radical change in society and government through
    terrorism and assassination.

    5. Psychiatry. A delusion, experienced in some mental disorders, that the
    world or one's mind, body, or self does not exist.

    So, one man’s philosophy is another’s mental disorder. There will be no rational approach to coping with problems in modern day living until the “profession” of psychiatry is abolished!

    I love your quote at the end. Damn Nihilists.
